Review: Theo Who Lived, 2016, dir. David Schisgall


If you don’t know Theo Padnos, then you probably don’t know Peter Theo Curtis, which is fine: He’s probably okay with not being “known” at this point in his life, because his life, in recent years, has been kinda rough, in which “rough” means “non-existent.” Curtis was kidnapped by Jabhat al-Nusra and kept prisoner between 2012 and 2014 while reporting from the front line of the Syrian war. Sucks, right? Not enough, it seems, that he doesn’t want to revisit his experience, and thus we have Theo Who Lived. I have literally zero idea where this thing is opening, but if you can check it out, do, but read my review at The Playlist beforehand because I think that’d be swell.
